After the war the authorities were quick to bury and destroy all such constructions and this one like all of the others just faded away.
However in 2011 the National Trust bought the land that forms the White Cliffs of Dover and in so doing inherited Fan Bay Battery and its deep shelter.
After rediscovery, the deep shelter was opened up and found to be in excellent condition after its 70years of hibernation and so, thanks to the National Trust, it will be opened up this summer to visitors from 20th July as a permanent tourist attraction.
The National Trust are selling it as a unique site to visit requiring a 90 minute round trip walk and a 30 minute guided tour of the site with torch and hardhat supplied; not for the feint hearted then!
We will visit and report back later in the year ourselves.
